Nanotechnology and Horticultural Sector

Abobatta W F

Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing) is a process that used to synthesize a 3D object under computer control with successive material layers. 3D printing witnessing a huge potential market with a new business modules, by establishing its own prominent position in the Medical (Clinical, Dental, Orthopedic and many), Architecture, Engineering (Aerospace, Automobile, Bio-material, Material and many) etc.
3D printing 2017 created a platform for 3D printers, researchers, bio printers, Surgeons, Material Engineers, 3D printing Industries & who all are the part of the 3D printing, to pool the knowledge on the current trends, innovations and methodology in 3D printing. It came up with the theme of the “Innovations in Medicine through 3D Printing”. There is more attention to use the Nanotechnology applications in various fields from the last few decades, whereas, in the agricultural sector, Nanotechnology has precious characters in the delivery of the various agrochemicals for enhancing plant resistance, plant growth, and nutrient use. From one hand, there is increasingly interesting to use different nano applications like Nanofertilizers, Nanocides, Nano-coating materials, Nanocarrier, and Nano-biosensors in improving horticultural production, from another hand, using nano applications in postharvest processing improving freshness, enhancing quality, and extended shelf life of horticultural products particularly perishable products and control disease activity during storage, also, Bio-Nanotechnology could protect soil and water by using designed Nanosensors linked to the global position system, which is more sensitive and show earlier response to environmental changes.
